New Metal | 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI

The all-new sixth generation Volkswagen Polo was revealed to the world last week, along with an enhanced GTI model. Yet certain things have left ESM feeling slightly bittersweet about it all. With a life spent living in the shadow of the bigger Golf GTI, it’s unprecedented for Volkswagen to announce a new Polo GTI at the same…

New Metal | Volkswagen Up GTI Concept

We seem to have been teased for years about a possible hot version of VW’s city car. Finally, we’re almost there, with the announcement of this production-ready concept. The ‘concept’ tag needs to be taken pretty lightly. From the details released, and the photos supplied by Volkswagen, this thing looks as close to being fit…

News | Porsche produces one-millionth 911

It might have taken over 53 years of production, but Porsche has finally built the one-millionth version of the 911. It’s green, and a little bit hipster. Painted ‘Irish Green’ in fact, and apparently inspired by a colour used on a 911 owned by the founder of the company – Ferry Porsche. Put together by…

New Metal | 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

In all the excitement surrounding the SRT Demon, we almost overlooked the fact that Jeep slipped out the most-powerful production SUV at the same time. It involves the Hemi Hellcat engine, so we should probably take a closer look. It must only be a matter of time before every product sold by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in the USA…

Engage Drag Mode | 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon | More details

It turns out we didn’t dream it, and Dodge really did release the most-powerful muscle car ever early this morning. Now that it’s actually sunk in, what does the SRT Demon actually deliver? Forgive us if our post this morning was a little short on detail. In our defence, it was almost 2am, and we had endured…

Video | New 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Dodge has seemingly founds its niche, which is producing ridiculous muscle cars with increasingly insane levels of performance. After the Hellcat now comes the Demon, which Dodge has hyped and teased to within an inch of its life. Was it worth the wait? Let’s cut to the chase. This is essentially a street-legal dragster, with 840hp…

Geneva 2017 | Lamborghini Huracán Performante

It’s bright orange, it’s got a huge rear wing, and it’s a Lamborghini. Of course we were going to feature the new Huracán Performante on EngageSportMode. The Performante is hardly a well-kept secret, as disguised test versions have been spotted out in the wild for months. We’ve also already seen the video of Lamborghini setting…

Ned Jasper | 2017 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

Ned Jasper is back, and he’s got the latest on the latest addition to the Porsche model range. It’s not rear-engined, but there’s certainly a lot going on out back! I’m told that good things come to those who wait. So, considering the Panamera Sport Turismo is the first Porsche estate car to leave Stuttgart…

New | Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet | Ultimate G

This could quite possibly be the weirdest answer to a question nobody has asked. Or, the perfect gift for the person who genuinely does already have everything. This G-Class is ideal for the crazy world of 2017. Important things first – the G 650 Landaulet is not going to be offered for sale in the UK. Sorry. We’re sure…

New Metal | 2018 Ford Mustang

The single most important part of this article? That the new 2018 Mustang is available with an ‘Orange Fury’ signature paint colour option. But there’s much more than just that, honest… Can you believe that the current sixth generation Ford Mustang has already been around for over three years? No, we couldn’t either, until we checked back…
